SHIPPING & RETURNS

We want you to be satisfied with your purchase and the experience of shopping with us. Our garments and homeware are hand picked with love and curated with attention to detail. Please care for and cherish each item to prolong its lifetime.
Although we hope you are satisfied with your selected items, we do understand that sometimes things don't always work out the way we want them to, and that’s okay too. 
Here's what you need to know about our shipping, returns and refunds. 
SHIPPING
We have a flat shipping fee of R85 for clothing and jewellery. This rate is our standard goods rate and applies if your purchase weighs between 0kg and 2kgs. Most of our clothing and jewellery, and some homeware items fall into this shipping category. 
If you purchase an item which weighs between 2kgs to 15kgs, or you purchase numerous items, collectively weighing somewhere in this region, you will be charged a heavy shipping rate of R150. All of our rugs fall into this  shipping category currently. 
If you are based in Cape Town, and you would like to waiver the shipping costs, we have a pick up in store option available. Once your package is ready for collection, we will notify you and you will have 1 week to collect it. If for some reason you are unable to collect within this time, please let us know so we can try our best to accomodate you. 
Our trusted courier company is the The Courier Guy. A tracking number will be sent to you via email once the order is complete, allowing you to track your parcel on their website. A physical address and a contact number is required for all orders placed online.
A signature will be requested upon delivery, so we suggest providing an address where someone will be able to sign between 9am and 5pm. If the recipient is unavailable at the time of delivery, your parcel will be left with someone who will be required to sign. Unfortunately, we are not able to deliver to P.O. Box addresses.
